Sunset is my perfect way to end the day. Over the years, I had traveled to many beautiful countries and have seen many amazing sunsets. Here are my top ten locations with the most amazing sunsets.
10 Location: New York City, New York
The Back Story: New York was my home for roughly eight years, but working and living in a big city had its own mark. I never had the opportunity to go outside and enjoy a sunset. It was a constant get up and go, always on the run. A busy schedule and a fast-paced lifestyle didn’t leave much of choice to pay attention to the outside world. Until one day, I started to travel the world in hopes of making it a full-time job.
Rediscovering a city that I thought I knew so well was a treat. I called it let’s be tourists for a day, do all the touristy activities. Like walking from Brooklyn towards Manhattan on the iconic Brooklyn bridge. Sure I’ve strolled across the bridge before, but I never took the time to appreciate the beauty of this structure and the massive size. Here is where the sunset can be as massive and as magnificent and as beautiful as the city. The sun shines through the buildings giving the steal a new look.
9 Location: Argentina.
The Back Story: Most of Argentina seems to be dry and lonely, but even the most lifeless places can be magical at the right time of day. The never-ending Argentinian desert is full of lamas and ostriches in search of food. The towns are empty with no prospect of life, completely deserted. But the beauty of this land shines thought unexpectedly.
“As the sunset approaches towards a ghost town, the rays fall on to a golden statue of cowboys on horses, and just like that the once lonely and gloomy ghost town is full of life. The dessert is a bright golden color, and the statues are a bright bronze. For a brief moment, this forgotten town feels alive and like the wild wild west.”
8 Location: Sydney, Australia.
The Back Story: Sydney is my favorite city, apart from Paris, France. I love this city, “love you to the moon and back.” I wish I lived in this town, and maybe one day I will. However, for now, I can only reflect on the good times I had, and all the fantastic places I had seen. One particular location I really love in Sydney is the Royal Botanic Gardens. Here like in New York, you can witness a beautiful sunset. The sun rests behind the high-rises giving the tall building a new purpose in life “Shine Bright.” The bright reflection from the buildings continues down to the ocean bay where the water sparkles and dazzles. Everything around appears to be more vivid and full of life, even the grass seems greener.
7 Location: Bali, Indonesia.
The Back Story: I have traveled to a few tropical islands and have seen my fair share of beautiful sunsets. Each island offers a fantastic ocean view sunset and Bali, was no exception. Each night was filled with a magical sunset, spend on a beach. The fresh ocean breeze and the waves crashing against the rocks produced a peaceful sound, a sound that relaxes your mind, body, and soul.
6 Location: Newfoundland
The Back Story: Newfoundland. Who said a sunset can’t be beautiful on a cold island? June isn’t what you would associate with cold weather, or is it? June in Newfoundland is full of snow, bitter wind, and unpredictable climate, making each sunset more unique than the previous one. To travel here is a treat and an adventure.
5 Nashville, Tennesse
The Back Story: It’s always been a dream of mine to travel to the Country Music capital. To be honest, I not sure why, I wouldn’t say that I’m a fan of this music genre, but something about the way people talked about this city had me wondering what it had to offer. Waiting to be discovered a city beyond the music row, a city whose limits are far beyond cowboy hats and boots. A city, full of up and coming neighborhoods, fancy restaurants, one of a kind boutiques and hotels with the most amazing interiors. Here in the midst of one of the new and cool areas, I discovered the beauty of this city and saw a hillside sunset that will be imprinted into my memory for a long time.
4 Location: Cape Cod, Massachusetts
The Back Story: The top go-to place in the summer for vacation-goers around the east coast. People book as far as a year an advance to get a good place to stay with a reasonable price tag to go along. Hyannis port, Denis port, and Provincetown are the more popular locations of this oddly shaped half-island. My 2018 summer was spent on this beach, where the sunsets where amazing and what made it even more special is the fact that my family was with me, and nothing is more precious than watching the sunsets with the once you love the most.
3 Location: Perm, Russia
The Back Story: This cold city located close to the Ural Mountains is my birthplace. I have lived in this winter wonderland for eleven years. What captured my young heart were the white nights occurring in August. For some reason, I never paid attention to the beautiful sunset. That all changed once I went back as an adult. In late November the days are shorter and the nights are longer, and the sunsets are spectacular. The sunset that captured my attention filled the sky with bright orange and pink clouds, filled with so much warmth, this Russian winter seemed not all that bad and bearable.
2 Provincial, Turks and Caicos
The Back Story: A tropical island famous for its beautiful beaches and extravagant hotels. Grace Bay is the most famous beach on the island and a place that should be visited. However, this beach isn’t where you will find the most magical sunset. The best sunsets are on the other side of the island. To be exact, you’ll need to travel about a twenty-minute to an all exclusive retreat. Amanyara Resort is where the sunset cocktails are as magnificent as the ocean view. This posh location is equipped with everything. Impeccable serves, out of this world design, and a selection of beverages/ food ready to please even the pickiest of people.
1 Big Island, Hawaii
The Back Story: Big Island, Hawaii is a magical place. Once you step out of the airplane on to an open-air airport and take in a breath of the moist, warm ocean air, you start to fell the island be apart of your holiday.I’ve been to both sides of the Big Island, Hilo was the one recently devastated by the volcano with neighborhoods being washed away from the face of the earth forever. Kona was the side that wasn’t touched by the hot molten lava. It is the most popular side of the island for tourist excursions. Filled with beautiful landscapes, great hikes, and a city center full of restaurants. Kona is the side for most amazing sunsets. At pretty much any location you will find mouth dropping aw gazing sunsets. Every night will be magical.
~If you really feel adventures drive up to Mauna Kea. The tallest mountain in the world, counting from its ocean base. Before you go, make sure to read all the warning signs like altitude sickness, and having a four-wheel drive is a must. If that isn’t an option for you, then drive to the tourist information center for more information about the hikes available around.
